to understand creates a lot of resentment on people. president clinton in 1998 launched tomahawk missiles based on the embassies that were blown up in east africa. and they hit targets, and if you had asked any of us in this room the next morning whether america was at war, i trust that all this would've said no. we fired some missiles, but we are not at war. if you would ask people near the impact, they would have a different view. so the danger is that could potentially lower the willingness to use force and not think of it as war. and yet you build up enemies and people that think they are at war with you. when did al qaeda go to war with the united states? the average answer is 9/11. but they declared war with us in 1996. most of us did not get the memo. they attacked and they were at war with us. there is always danger in both ways. the danger of all the technology is that tiger has the same potential. anytime you can sit back and in relative safety and do something with someone off, you don't necessarily feel that if your son or daughter was going into the target area and you were going t

to take this opportunity to also appreciate the outgoing secretary of state, the inimitable mrs. clinton has been an ally and partner uncertainly viewed very well in pakistan as the most important and powerful diplomat representing the united states views abroad. we welcome john kerry because pakistan has john kerry as the architect -- one of the architects of the kerry lugar berman legislation, which has been instrumental in broad basing this relationship and anchoring it and we hope they longer and more sustainable multifaceted relationship. we also know it's not a relation as well as political parties. we work and we hope to work with every senior policymaker in the united states as well as congress and of course senator kerry has emerged from those ranks. so we look forward to working with them and i don't think we need to speak to anyone. he has pretty much spelled his policy agenda and i'm sure he has a great deal to address as he takes this important and challenging time. >> one for me and i'm a loop around the table. as you know, foreign minister today talk of the council on fore
